  • Review "How to add narration to a presentation." Click on the PowerPoint help icon and search.
 Assignment: Prepare a 6-10 slide narrated PowerPoint presentation that identifies the possible risks to an organization in each of the following outsourcing situations:
  • The use of an external service provider for your data storage.
  • The use of an enterprise service provider for processing information systems applications such as a payroll, human resources, or sales order taking.
  • The use of a vendor to support your desktop computers.
  • The use of a vendor to provide network support.
 The presentation will include a risk mitigation strategy for each situation. One mitigation strategy, because of personnel and facility limitations, cannot be proposed, because it eliminates the outsourcing by bringing the situation in house.
